Grocery Store Canned Food For Your Deep Pantry byfor Modern Survival Blog
GNN Note – Maintaining a “deep pantry” keeps the family ahead of inflation, teaches spacial management, time management and inventory management. All life skills that are too far removed for our “just-in-time” society. /END
Canned food from the grocery store definitely fills a gap in food storage preparedness. Here’s why…
– They come in a wide variety of food groups.
– Available at all grocery stores.
– Easy to store in your pantry / shelves.
– A pretty good shelf life. At least several years for most.
– None of them technically need to be cooked prior to consumption.
These attributes make canned foods one of the quickest and easiest ways to store some foods for preparedness.
I am not discounting other foods and their own unique packaging & processing! Rather I’m saying that canned foods are simply…simple. It’s one aspect of an overall diversified food storage plan.
Grocery Canned Food Groups
Food storage diversification is important! In other words, a well balanced supply of food types. Grocery store canned foods are just one of them. Lots of articles on this site about other types.
Important! Consume and Rotate! Don’t let them just sit there for “just in case”. Hopefully there will never be a “just in case”, so don’t let it go to waste. Simply build up an inventory and then start consuming and replacing! Kind of like having your own little mini grocery store.
Canned Beef, Poultry, Seafood
Meat. Protein. Calories. No refrigeration required for grocery store canned foods (unless opened of course). You will pay more per-ounce/pound because of processing/packaging compared with the fresh meat counter. However you won’t have to worry about the power going out and food spoilage in your freezer.
Beef, Pork, Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, Salmon, Ham, and of course >>> SPAM!
